Labor Education



Since the early 1980’s, EILER’s education curriculum has been geared towards enabling trade unions to respond to labor and social issues in a way that reflects their sectoral interest, as well as the greater interest of society. EILER believes that labor education plays a key role in laying the foundation for empowering unions vis-a-vis big capital and unfair state policies.
